Shaquil Barrett's 'Shattered' Wife Posts Poignant Tribute to Their Late 2-Year-Old
Jordanna Barrett is paying tribute to her late two-year-old daughter.
NFL linebacker Shaquil Barrett and his wife lost their daughter Arrayah just a week ago, and Jordanna is sharing sweet memories in a gut-wrenching post that captured their beautiful daughter during the happiest times of her life.
The carousel of moments included Arrayah enjoying bath time, dancing around the living room, and other videos that showcased her being her jolly self.
"I miss your laugh. I miss your smile. I miss your hugs, I miss your mommas. I miss everything about you. My heart is so shattered. I would do anything to give you one more hug, one more I love you. One more anything," she wrote in the post.
Jordanna continued: "I wish I could go back and change time. I wish I could hold you so close. I just miss you my Arrayah girl. I just miss you. I love you forever. And am [sic] counting down the days until I get to be with you again! Memories will never be enough. But thank you for the best 2 years of our lives. Your smile and laugh will forever be engraved in me. You are the sunshine to my days, and the beats to my heart. The world was a better place because you were in it."
"I love you forever and always and miss every big and little thing about you. Please stay close, momma needs you. ❤️," she concluded.

The couple's daughter passed away last week after falling into the Barrett's pool at their Florida home.
Authorities responded to a call stating that a child had fallen into a pool around 9:30 a.m. local time, according to a statement from the Tampa Police Department. The toddler was then brought to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead despite lifesaving measures, authorities noted.
Arrayah was Shaquil and Jordanna's youngest child of four.
